[Obama] could have chosen to identify himself with the white race, but he selected the black race because it enabled him to continue with his birthright allegiance to the goals and objectives of Islam unchallenged.The author of these words sets up an interesting contrast. Obama embraced blackism to take advantage of its multiple opportunities to slide into a privileged positions without effort or achievement. This is completely consistent with the goals of garden-variety Islam, let it be said.
When considering Islam and/or Muslims this is the opposite path most blacks follow. Theirs has been a religious migration into the Islamic faith in order to escape whatever their life style is here in our country.
But there's another side to blackism as manifested in the embrace by some blacks of Islam and its bastard, spaceship-circling-Earth variant, the Nation of Islam. (There's no qualitative difference between the original article and the NoI offshoot but that's another years worth of posts on that particular point alone.)
The interesting insight Deep Dark Down has is that the embrace of Islam is not so much a manifestation of black rejection of white culture but rather of black rejection of black culture. White culture has degraded over recent decades (ten of them) – and destroyed blacks' community, family, and self respect in the process. Blacks enthusiastically embraced every feature of white stupidity and betrayal of their own white heritage and ended up with the horror of ghetto life that you see today. That part wasn't foreseen or wished for by whites and is a nightmare exclusively of black construction. Hence, the full nightmare of blackism that stalks the streets, alleys, parking lots, and stairwells of black areas.
Imagine what vibrant, safe, pleasant communities blacks would live in if they emphasized kids staying in school and doing homework, extirpated the "no snitching" commandment from their thinking, and looked at welfare and illegitimacy as the poisonous things they are.
The stuff of science fiction!
In the absence of any white firmness, discipline, or retribution – and with trainloads of evidence of white weakness and cowardice – some blacks embraced extraordinarily bizarre alternative associations in the hope that they could find rationality, firmness, discipline, and community with other people of strength and discipline.
The actual experience of people with the Nation of Islam or, say, Jamaat ul-Fuqra, has been described elsewhere and it can be seen that the blacks who embraced those alternatives ended up being damned if they do and damned if they don't.
But it's an extraordinarily useful insight that blacks who made these choices wanted more rigor and self confidence around them. That they made such pathetic choices is sad, doubly so because they saw even those choices as superior to embracing the debased, enervated, flaccid culture of main stream society that may now loosely be described as "white culture."
